Fire risk assessments are a standard procedure for insurance companies and other entities that insure the property. The purpose of an assessment is to identify the potential fire risks to a property and to develop a plan to reduce those risks.
What Is a Fire Risk Assessment?
A fire risk assessment (FRA) is a detailed inspection of your building's structure and systems designed to identify potential hazards and risks associated with fires. It helps insurance companies assess the likelihood of a fire occurring and its impact on your property.
Fire Risk Assessments help to:
Identify people at risk
Identify fire hazards
Identify emergency routes and exits
Identify dangerous substances
Identify fire sounders and warning systems
Identify fire fighting equipment
Evaluate, reduce or remove the risks
Prepare emergency plans
Provide training and information for employees/tenants
Why Do You Need One?
An FRA is a critical component of any insurance policy because it provides a snapshot of the condition of your property. This allows insurers to make informed decisions about whether to insure your property. If your property has been recently renovated, updated, or modified, an FRA will help ensure that the work was done correctly and safely.
